San Francisco Chronicle: Riley, Freshman Lead Cal in Rout of UC Davis


Before folks get carried away and give the Heisman Trophy to wide receiver Keenan Allen after one game, let's see this polished Cal freshman do it against a real college football team. Poor UC Davis certainly did not qualify on that count Saturday at Memorial Stadium as the Bears made the Aggies absorb a 52-3 defeat for their $300,000 payday down Interstate 80. Allen, the prize of coach Jeff Tedford's 2010 recruiting class, dazzled 58,000 fans in his first game as he gained 158 yards and scored two touchdowns on just seven touches on offense. He also had an 18-yard kickoff return. "He's going to make plays, but you've got to think we're going to be playing better competition, so it won't be as easy," quarterback Kevin Riley said of his wunderkind teammate. "It's going to be harder against better teams."
